What the school offers its staff

About Solihull Alternative Provision Multi Academy Trust

"Open a school", they said...so we did...

"It’ll be great", they said...And it was, but also the toughest thing professionally any of us have done.

"So many pupils need something different", they said... and they were correct... our students did and do need something different.

Since April 2018 we have been on a journey to use the idea of “Alternative” in Alternative Provision as a driver to create a new school for the most vulnerable pupils in the local authority, and the impact and results tell us we are making a real difference. Prior to our opening our local authority permanently excluded more secondary students than 90% of the rest of the country despite being the wealthiest borough in the West Midlands. So, in a unique partnership between the Local Authority, mainstream school and ourselves, we built a school, provision and curriculum to combat that and ensure the best possible outcomes for highest tariff students in the local authority. We have developed our school based on 4 specific targets:

-Prevent PEX

-Fewer FTE

-Beat Baseline and/or KS2 targets


Every decision we make and every action we take is based on these four targets and absolutely child-focused and, from that simple premise, we have created our Academy. If you are looking for a new challenge and have unconditional positive regard, emotional resilience and utter belief that every child deserves a better future, then maybe we and, more importantly, our students need you as part of TeamSA.
